Peace in Frankfort? Senator suggests Beshear and Williams have dinner to bury the hatchet
04/25/2012 08:09 AM
Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear and Republican Senate President David Williams really don’t like each other. The two former foes in last year’s governor’s race traded name calling as each man refused to give in over the road funding bill on the last day of the regular session April 12.
Remember how they described each other on the final day:
State Sen. Jack Westwood, R-Erlanger, said the ending to the regular session was “frustrating” — especially watching the back-and-forth between Williams and Beshear.
After winning the governor’s race last fall, Beshear will be in office through 2015. So should the Senate Republican caucus choose a new leader who might be able to work with Beshear? Westwood answers that and offers his advice for what those two men should do to try to get along:
